    Saitek Eclipse 2 or 3 they are great boards :) Although the Eclipse 2 has a knob to turn the brightness of the backlight up and down.

    I just got the Logitech G500 mouse and it completely out classes my Razer Lachesis.

    I also costs less...Razer are so over rated.

    Omagana: i kinda agree with you on the overrated bit. I mean maybe not so much for people with smaller hands.... or if you're the type that only ever has your fingertips touching the mouse.... but i like a mouse that i can rest my hand on top of and be comfortable, and anything Razer isn't it. At least none that i've seen so far. They all seem so small. That's why i like Logitech's mice. excellent quality, nice size, not a lot of weight (another thing i hate about Razer..... it's like there's nothing to them), and for their latest wireless mice (MX1000, MX1100, MX Revolution, Performance Mouse MX, etc...) excellent battery life.

    I'm kind of leaning towards that logitech g15 for a keyboard right now.

    I like the backlit design and the reviews look pretty solid. Any gripes with this one?

    Not sure on the mouse.

    i never really got the point behind insanely high DPI settings on mice. my Logitech Performance Mouse MX has the ability to change DPI settings on the fly.... but i only ever tried it once..... and never did it again, cause it's annoying as hell. Would it be better turning up the DPI on the mouse and turning down the sensitivity in the regular Setpoint settings?

    Logitech Illuminated is another great backlit keyboard. It has flat "laptop" style keys, which have a shorter stroke. It's also about half the price of a G15.

    G9 or G9x are top mice. Some people don't like them, but I reckon this is more statistical than fact. If more people have something, there is more chance that there will be people that don't like them. Quality build, interchangable grips and weights, a nice braided cord, and laser sensor.

    I'm using a Logitech Slim keyboard and a Logitech Basic mouse. My mate has a G15 and a G9, I don't reckon the G15 is anything special, but the G9 has a great feel and build.

    I really like this keyboard and looked at it, but it doesn't have a my computer/calculator button. Lots of keyboards don't but they have programmable hotkeys. Do you know if I can program some of those function keys? Otherwise it would be perfect. The G15 is nice too...The v1 looks way cooler I think with the blue...It is a little wide though.

    Where you finding the prices...It looks like the illuminated is about as expensive as the G15.

    You can just use a macro application to program the keys. The G15 just has a few "spare" keys so you don't need to override the function of the alphanumeric keys.

    The best feature as I see it, and the keyboard I use now also has it (Logitech Ultra Flat - only about $20-30), are the flat "laptop" keys. Although the Ultra Slim key layout is a bit cramped, all the keys ae close together, as you can see below:

    The Illuminated has a better layout, and better keys IMO, I had a feel at the shops :D

    Oh yeah, and I see the G15 has dropped a bit in price since I last looked.

    The function buttons--can those be programmed to open what you want them to open? Like if you have firefox and IE does it automatically look and see what your default browser is or do you have to tell the Logitech drivers?

    So instead of a browser or email button I could use it to open my computer?

    I have been using the same internet keyboard pro for about 8 or 9 years, so I am used to the My PC and calc buttons. I won 2 of them, a sidewinder joystick, xp, and some games at a Msft test thing I was invited to a long time ago-right around the XP launch.
